Issac Bailey blog | What the strong jobs report says about the president’s record

I recently wrote about Gov. Nikki Haley and South Carolina’s economic success, particularly noting that the state has a jobless rate lower than the national average, which is not typical, and we’ve had a string of new job announcements. I also noted, though, that she left some residents behind, hundreds of thousands of poor residents who would have health insurance now if she did not block the Medicaid expansion through the Affordable Care Act. By doing that, she also blocked billions of dollars of economic activity and tens of thousands of jobs.
